Facts about Sheba-Sweet & Spunky

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Sheba was dropped off at a public shelter because she did not get along with the children in the's hard to believe that this 8 mos. old kitten cutie did anything more than do what comes naturally... and play. Perhaps it was too rough as she had no other outlet or feline companion to wrestle/pounce/chase with... or perhaps she was mishandled by the children causing her to act out in defense. All we know is that this sweetie is deserving of a home where her people will appreciate her and provide her with lots of toys, playtime and love.. Sheba is a high energy girl who sometimes gets over stimulated and playbites...she still needs to be taught some kitty manners but is young enough to learn. She loves pets and will rub against your legs. Her two favorite activities are playing with wand toys and checking out any running water...she is fascinated!!. Sheba loves to hang out with her person wherever you are in the house and has formed the habit of coming to bed with her foster mom.. Despite her occasional rowdiness, she is a great little buddy who will meet you at the door when you get home and make you laugh with her silly antics every day. She's also an expert fly chaser!. Sheba has no fear of new people. It takes her about 2 seconds to start rubbing on legs and looking for pets and head scratches. While not always ready to cuddle, she is playful and social. Sheba would be purrfect for someone who wants a companion to their own cuddly cat and doesn't need her to be the object of much affection, except when she asks. Can you give her a second chance and a loving home? Meet her in her Annandale, VA foster home. Updated 7/19/17

** Did you know that black cats are half as likely to be adopted as other colors and are considered to be the underdog of the cat world? Give Sheba a chance and she'll prove what a loving companion she can be! **

About Home Alone Feline Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, private feline-only rescue group dedicated to the rescue, care and placement of homeless cats and kittens. We do not have a shelter and rely on a group of dedicated foster homes to care for our felines until a "fur-ever" home can be found. We actively promote the importance of spaying and neutering and best practices in companion animal care. The majority of our cats/kittens come from high-kill shelters. We do not receive any government funding and rely on private contributions, 100% of which go to provide medical care, food and supplies.

You can support our rescue by shopping your favorite online stores through It's FREE and easy to use. Simply click on the link below which will connect you directly to our shelter's shopping page. Then shop like you always do at your favorite stores, including Amazon, Ebay, Petsmart & Home Depot. Whatever you buy, a portion of EVERY purchase will come to us in a cash donation.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our cats are in private foster homes; therefore, we require an application be completed before setting up appointments to meet them; an application can be e-mailed, faxed or mailed upon request. Adopters must be within a reasonable driving distance to No. VA ( 60 minutes); we do not ship/transport our animals. We participate in public adoption event held in various locations in the Wash.DC/No. VA areal most Sundays in conjunction with other rescuers. Please e-mail us for specifics.

Our Adoption Process...

We strive to make the "purr-fect" match through our interview and application process. Adoption fees, which range from $100-$135, include all medical work (FELV/FIV testing, shots; spay/neuter, etc); home visits are required prior to final placement. The majority of our kittens are only available for adoption in pairs or as a companion to another young cat/kitten already in the home. Sorry, but we do not adopt very young kittens to families with children under 6 yrs old due to safety concerns for both child and kitten. Adopters also receive a certificate for a free comprehensive wellness exam at any Caring Hands Animal Hospital.
